"My ******* was like a national park. Visitors were expected to leave no trace. I wasn't going to be one of those women in their mid-thirties who had to tie their labia into a sailor's knot just to fit it in her pants. No, thank you."
Maggie was born into a world of privilege, something that she didn't want. She never fit into the cookie cutter mold that others tried to put her in, lucky for her, she had parents that found a way to live with her brand of crazy. When she was a teenager, she convinces her mother to let her attend a certain event and it was there that she met her other half, the boy who completed her. Unfortunately for both of them, that would be the last time they saw each other.
Fast forward several years later, Maggie, having gone through a series of hilarious and interesting relationship mishaps still pined for this man. A chance meeting brings them together again and more hilarity ensued.
From beginning to end this book had me in tears. Not from sadness, but the overwhelming amount of laughter. I nearly peed my pants during certain parts I dare not mention to prevent spoilers. I've never thought a couple was more deserving to be together than Finn and Maggie. She was the ying to his yang, the Patrick to his Sponge Bob and the Leia to his Hans Solo.
The best part for me was when they finally see each other again. That kind of relationship that stands the test of time is what makes this book special. I would love a follow up to this story because I think Maggie and Finn definitely have more to say.
"Going Up" is snort out loud, laugh until the words are blurry with tears, good time reading. The pace is good and the storyline is amusing and intriguing. This is one of those romances where the Hero and the Heroine don't "really" have sex until the bitter end. HOWEVER, the sex they do have, before they meet, is HOT. When they DO get together it's a whirlwind of Shock and Aw! Notice not "Awe" but "Aw". Consequently Maggie and Finn's ultra-spontaneous personalities cause them to be unrestrained and borderline illegal, but oh so romantic. The secondary characters are Gold! Maggie's beleaguered mother is wonderful. Her unflappable father, when he's ruffled is firing on all cylinders. Then the infamous past boyfriends. Lake, the smelly, dreadlocked commune dweller. The rodeo clown. Ramone - poor Ramone. GOLD I tell you!!! I don't think I could love this book any more if I tried.
I ADORE the romance in "Going Up"! After Reading it more than once, I grin like a loon, envisioning the Fairy-Tale-like whimsical utopias Comic Cons must be. Katherine Stevens does a magnificent job with the characters of Finn and Maggie. Finn's geeky charm hob-nobs with an almost guileless childlike joy. Maggie is a rebel force, an unconventional free-spirit on a mission. She's extremely complex because she has so much passion to be unique and different from her parents. She doesn't want to be like them nor does she like what their money represents. But she doesn't hold the mirror out far enough to see the entire picture when she's looking at herself. Maggie's not that far off from what her parents are exactly. Katherine Stevens has the internal monologues on point. Both "Going Down" and "Going Up" are worth reading. But "Going Up" is definitely an amazing Romantic Comedy!
